Hi. My name is Hannah. Our family is currently in dire need of a reliable car so that my mom can take my 6-year-old brother, Micah, back and forth to his daily medical appointments. We have been helped along by many friends who have supplied rides and let us borrow extra cars for short periods of time, but a reliable car of our own is a necessary resource.

In the spring of 2018, our family’s only car stopped working beyond repair. One terrifying night in June, Micah woke up screaming that he couldn’t breathe.  A few minutes later, Micah and my mom were on their way to the ER in an ambulance. Micah had to breathe through a tube for over a month and was diagnosed with a massive, life-threatening tumor in his throat and chest.  Micah was restrained to his bed and heavily sedated to prevent him from pulling out the breathing tube that was keeping him alive. During this hospitalization, he lost a lot of muscle strength, coordination, and endurance.  At first, he could no longer walk or even sit up by himself anymore.

Micah is quite a little fighter and continues to mystify his medical team. He recently had an extensive and risky surgery at Texas Children’s Hospital, where a team of surgeons was finally able to remove almost all of the tumor at the cost of some important nerves for breathing and speaking, and parts of his thyroid and pericardium.  Over the course of the year, Micah has received several different kinds of chemotherapy treatments, but so far none have been successful. He still has a portion of the tumor on his trachea and requires daily chemotherapy treatment (and will possibly need radiation) in an effort to completely eliminate all the remaining tumor cells, plus up to ten medical appointments each week for physical, occupational, and speech therapy, as well as continuing oncology appointments, a long list of surgery follow-ups, and regular counseling to help him cope with the stresses of his current condition.

All of these medically necessary appointments and treatments mean a lot of driving to different hospitals and clinics on a daily basis, but our family has no vehicle of our own to rely upon to help Micah get the care he needs.

Please help my mom and brother gather the funds they need to finally have the dependable transportation they need through the long road toward Micah’s recovery.

[The car fund] never got near enough to the goal to allow us to purchase a vehicle (for his medical and other necessary transport), but we have been donated a small 2003 model car that needs regular maintenance so we've been using the car fund to pay for those and other vehicle expenses that are directly related to Micah's needs for medical transportation (in keeping with the original intentions of the fund). This month's rear brake repairs have brought us nearly to the end of that fund and next month's front brake repairs and other routine maintenance will put us in a deficit. It's still better than a car payment by a long ways, but for us, it affects our budget enough that we have had to alter our diets and other daily habits to pay for this stuff, and we're not exactly eating like royalty the rest of the time, ha. But it's impossible to express how grateful we are for those donations because, together with the gift of the vehicle, I have been able to get Micah to all his necessary appointments in Temple and Houston for a full year now, not to mention grocery shopping and all the other ways a car makes our lives doable. Thirteen months ago, I couldn't do any of that. So yeah, we are extremely grateful and blessed." —Sarah Gilmore, Micah's mom
